Decolonizing Our Minds 2015: life is protest

By Equity Studies Student Union (other events)

Saturday, February 28 2015 11:30 AM 6:00 PM

Each year we host Decolonizing Our Minds (DOM) with the aim of creating a space where Equity Studies students and members of the community can identify and interrogate the ways in which different marginalized groups practice resistance. This year, we want to engage you in an exploration of the intersectionality of resistance and oppression, with a special focus on conceptualizing life as the most dynamic form of protest and its parallel narrative of death as a galvanizing force for activism.

featuring keynote speaker Dr. Audra Simpson, associate professor of anthropology, columbia university.

doors open at 11:30AM // opening remarks at 12:00PM
